Four Pieces of Peppermint Cheesecake Bites in Checkered Christmas Cloth

So it’s pretty clear I have a few loves food-wise and I am sure you know that mint/peppermint is one of my top ten. You give me mint, I am a happy girl!

Going along with my Christmas theme of Let’s Keep Our Sanity Intact This Year, these little cheesecake bites are a monumental testament to my urge to make quick, easy everything this holiday season. All they take are five ingredients and literally about 10 minutes to make!

They are fast, easy, delicious and a fabulous addition to your holiday dessert table.  I have fooled around with no less than FOUR cheesecake bite recipes in total, so keep your eyes peeled! I had one fun day creating all these different types of cheesecake bites for the site, you can just imagine what my kitchen looked like!

The other thing I love about these is that no one will have seen them before, they are a brand new creation I just came up with. They are so simple and easy and look so beautiful!  Not to mention, we are talking chocolate and peppermint here folks, oh and the cheesecake flavor as well.

Serious yum.

Are you all keeping sane during these last few weeks before Christmas? I’m trying, really, I am! I think I’m holding it together. Possibly. I bet if you asked Mike the answer might be different….we are packing for our trip, arranging all sorts of last-minute things that need to be done, but it’s all coming together so fabulously!

I hope. *crosses fingers*. I am always so paranoid about forgetting really important things, like, oh passports or the like. It just brings out the inner worrier in me!

Happy Baking everyone!
